Christian School Expels Girl for Having Lesbian Parents
A 14-year-old girl was expelled from a Christian school in Ontario, USA last week because her parents are lesbians, the school’s superintendent said in a letter.
“Your family does not meet the policies of admission,” Superintendent Leonard Stob wrote to Tina Clark, the girl’s biological mother, in a letter last Thursday.
Stob wrote that school policy requires that at least one parent may not engage in practices “immoral or inconsistent with a positive Christian life style, such as cohabitating without marriage or in a homosexual relationship,” The Los Angeles Times reported in Friday’s edition.
Shay and her parents said they won’t fight the ruling.
School administrators said they learned of the parents’ relationship this week after Shay was reprimanded for talking to the crowd during a football game, Clark explained.
Clark and her partner have been together 22 years and have two other daughters, ages 9 and 19.
